Let’s just all agree that the opening scene to this week’s episode of Almost Human was nothing but incredibly bizarre. We get that supposed to be the point, but during the whole time, it didn’t even look or feel like the show. It wasn’t bad by any means, but it was just so different and didn’t look like it was an episode of the show.
“Perception” was once again one of those episodes where you were more interested in what was going on with the main characters than the case of the week. That has perhaps been one of the show’s problems (which there are few of) throughout its run so far.
Most of the time, they manage to write compelling and intriguing cases that feel futuristic and different. But then there have been a few occasions where you don’t get into the cases and instead, mostly focus on what is going with John and Dorian.
Even though it was supposed to be a very serious scene when John was getting flashes, the minute we discovered that Dorian’s ear had been ripped off, it just became hilarious. But aside from that, it was good that we got to see John’s enormous shield get a crack or two because so far, he has always been stable, physically and mentally.
